OpEd: WOKE, Yet Fast Asleep

 



theodore miraldi.

Let me illuminate a common misconception regarding this entire discussion about White Supremacy, Cancel Culture, and who it affects. The dribble coming from the Left and its Liberal Elites scattered about within our learning Institutions, Media and Entertainment Industry isn't just about people of color. The same elitists are targeting those who lead normal and less than prosperous lives struggling from the weight of those who consider themselves our superiors.

We, the majority of the population are suffering far more than any minority by those who are and may very well be white themselves. A bit of a conundrum by any measurable standards. Those on the top of the food chain whether deserved or not have become very judgmental of the rest. 

This faux egoism is tightly wrapped within selected groups that somehow have gamed and gained control of the Institutions that project cultural norms and behaviors better known as The Woke! For the most part, these Pop Culture proclivities are birthed in our Urban Cities and Metropolitan areas in past years and produced positive change. No longer so!

Whether you like the facts or not, the change in demographics has force-fed the populace a diet of dysfunctional narratives that only apply to specific groups leaving those outside relegated to the Status of The Other. Many of these newfound powerbrokers demand change and acceptance by any means. 

Unfortunately, the newly Woke are anything but aware. So selective in the acceptance of dysfunctions and irrational perspectives that the vast majority of the public have repudiated their true lack of personal and interpersonal social integration. Unwilling to accept common cultural views and seize opportunities with proven results to solidify their outsider status but, alienate the massive community now circling the wagons ready to strike. 

These are unsustainable methods of social control. The January gathering in DC was a shot across the bow. We are seeing a crack in their solidarity because of the rise in violence in areas of the nation which they control politically. 

One can't build a healthy environment on Lies and Mis-Direction. 

It's time for both sides to be shaken by reality. Judging others in their worst moments is a special kind of dishonor that only shames the accuser. Categorizing someone as deplorable is no different than the myriad of stereotypical names associated with the appearance of Bias, Bigotry, and Racism.

Woke refers to a perceived awareness of issues that concern social justice and racial justice. It derives from the African-American Vernacular English expression stay woke. As I have stated in the past and borrow from Plato; 'An unexamined life is not worth living.'

It can only be perceived as hypocritical and shameless that those who raise their fist in defiance of past inequality now using the same mindless methods against others. It might be refreshing to actually see communities who suffer violence and poverty on themselves to find a better way.

Be a part of something better, actions speak louder than empty words...

What Say You?




I’ve lived in a time of much tragedy and joy. I’ve soared through the clouds, and cried in the valley of despair.

I’ve seen armies marching, and illness cured, assassination change the face of policy and politic.

I’ve seen a nation rally to greatness, and bow its head in shame.

I’ve witnessed man’s betrayal of life in his quest to become god, only to start the clock of his own demise.

I’ve seen love like no other and felt its gentle hand and words screaming from mouths that hate man’s subtle hues.

I’ve seen praise for heroes, and praise for foe, and truth and lie intermingle as natural as mother with child.

I’ve seen force brought to its knees by a tear, an encouragement, a helping hand, and traveled the road that led from heaven to hell.

So, what say you of man’s silent courage to triumph over tyranny and moral decay.

For life is built of human tears, some sad, some joyous.

All to behold!

So, what say you?

OpEd: DEMOCRATS Race To The Bottom ... AGAIN!

 




theodore miraldi.


Democrats are in the bag with Division and not Unity. Their newest fig leaf to the minorities is RACIAL EQUITY

I beg someone to explain what the hell that means. 

In the face of a common stupidity that has been force-fed to their minority constituents, anyone in the state of consciousness realizes this to be just another non-sequitur fantasy of the Left's overactive Groupthink mantra. To them, it really doesn't have to mean anything, nor will they ever explain its meaning.

What's highly disturbing are Biden's initial Executive Orders on Transgender and Illegal Alien issues. While the nation is suffering illness and death nearing 500,000 this president's priorities are on bathroom use, men competing against girls
and allowing new caravans and their criminal elements to march into your neighborhoods. Now add to it codifying Roe v. Wade ... the killing of unborn children. 

What could he be thinking? 

This form of eclectic fantasy thinking flies in the face of non-secular reasoning, and policy that seeks positive outcomes.

Who the hell are these people in Washington?

As each new day arises in the Biden presidency we can begin to see a pattern of crippling edicts that have a direct and immediate effect on the well-being of Americans. Reinstituting failures with known adversaries who admittedly call for Death to our way of life. What is so attractive about government control and human abuse do Democrats find so appealing?

The assault Democrats have been pushing for the last 5 years has been a destabilizing force among the most vulnerable Americans, those with families and personal responsibilities. The government has no right to exacerbate the pain. Covid is a Health Crisis, not a National Emergency. 

It is apparent the Draconian effects of Lock-Downs have made things worse. Millions of Americans will be climbing out of the financial abyss while Washington sends taxpayer dollars overseas while demoralizing Middle America once more. This over-reach reeks of Centralized Power and Authoritarianism in the name of Unity. Just ask citizens of China, Cuba and Venezuela, and others if they feel free in their forced Unity!

Biden in less than a week has delivered a deathblow to Americans under the guise of Unity. We've seen this B-Movie before. Its title might read ... 'You Promised UsThe World, and Gave Us Tyranny and eventual Slavery.

They have promised Unity as long as we Assimilate into a Culture and Society of Failure! Welcome to their NWO!

Clinton Hints Trump May Have CALLED Putin DAY Of RIOT at Capitol, Pelosi Wants 9/11 Commission-Type Probe

BAT-SHIT CRAZY!!
...tmiraldi




 Edmund DeMarche

Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state, spoke with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on her podcast about the riot at the U.S. Capitol earlier this month and hinted that Russian President Vladimir Putin may have been receiving updates about the chaos from President Trump. 

Clinton, who hosts the podcast, "You and Me Both," told Pelosi that she would be interested in obtaining President Trump's phone records to see if he was on the phone with Putin while the Capitol was being breached.

Clinton lost to Trump in 2016 and said it is clear that Trump has a disdain for democracy, but its true depths may never be known. She said the president had "other agendas" while in the White House and hopes that one day it becomes known who exactly the president was "beholden to" and "who pulls his strings."

"I would love to see his phone records to see if he was talking to Putin the day the insurgents invaded our Capitol," she said. She asked Pelosi if she believed the country would benefit from a 9/11-commission-type probe to investigate what exactly led up to the deadly riot.

Pelosi said she is in favor of such a commission and she recalled telling the president that, "With you, Mr. President, all roads lead to Putin."

"I don’t know what Putin has on him politically, financially or personally, but what happened last week was a gift to Putin because Putin wants to undermine democracy in our country and throughout the world," Pelosi said. She said those that took part in the riot were "Putin’s puppets."

DEMS DIDN'T ALWAYS CONDEMN VIOLENCE

"So yes, we should have a 9/11 commission and there is strong support in the Congress to do that," she said.

Representatives from Pelosi and Clinton did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News.

The suggestion from a former top diplomat that a sitting president could have somehow interacted with a foreign leader during such a trying time in the country's history is remarkable and perhaps is an example of how divided the parties are in Washington. Trump supporters often tie President-elect Joe Biden to China.

Byron York, the Fox News contributor, retweeted a clip of the podcast and wrote, "There was a House investigation. A Senate investigation. A special prosecutor investigation with the full powers of law enforcement. Obsessive media inquiries. None found what Hillary Clinton wanted to find. So she wants another..."

CLICK HERE FOR THE FOX NEWS APP

Clinton called the breach an "invasion" while Congress was "doing the work of Democracy" and certifying an election. Earlier this month, she offered her support for impeaching Trump a second time, but claimed that the root problem that led to the riot at the Capitol last week – white supremacy – will still remain. 

She wrote in a Washington Post op-ed that the violent protest "was the tragically predictable result of white-supremacist grievances" that she said were fed by Trump's rhetoric.

"Removing Trump from office is essential, and I believe he should be impeached," Clinton wrote. "Members of Congress who joined him in subverting our democracy should resign, and those who conspired with the domestic terrorists should be expelled immediately. But that alone won’t remove white supremacy and extremism from America."

All Men are RIGHTEOUS? What are Communists/Socialists?

Communism failed. What about the ideal of global humanity? | Aeon ...


theodore  M I R A L D I.


There are some that may think this concept to be ill-conceived, yet how will history judge America's use of an Atomic Weapon on Hiroshima and Nagasaki? We live in a world where men and nations are given the power to eliminate their enemies with the use of technology in War and in Peace. Unfortunately, this creative/destruction paradigm is measured in the loss of life, and must always be seen as its most egregious outcome.

In my opinion, Covid-19 was a deliberate act against the West. Being driven into a financial disaster by changing economic policies, China saw the writing on the wall. Losing the power of the dollar has crippled their ability to complete what they have been boldly stating for decades ... surpassing the United State in Military, Economic, and Political Power around the world.

For reasons beyond logic, we have alloyed a Communist Nation bent of destroying our way of life and replacing it with a Utopian Nightmare. And don't blame China! We no longer resemble the nation that has fought for Liberty and Individual Rights. We now worship gilded Idols, not unlike the Israelites did at Mt. Sinai. This offense in the face of God lasted for 40 years of hardship. How long will humankind suffer?

The Chinese have gotten smarter as we dumb down our children and crush their future with Debt, Drugs, and Fear.

In Truth, the antagonists always get flushed out and suffer the consequences of the Evil they promote. It's as if free people are embedded with a notion of fairness and openness that ultimately through hardship prevails. This should make one wonder why some want to control the knowledge. It's what Communists and Socialists have done now for well over 100 years since Marx and Engles penned the Communist Manifest in 1848. 

It's perplexing as to why this failed paradigm continues to exist. The cost has been in the hundreds of millions and its radical sense of false liberty has doomed hundreds of millions of unborn children as well. In its 172 years, its evils have spanned the world leaving only death and hardship. 

If there is anyone left that may think China's form of Communism is new and improved, think again and count the friends, neighbors, and loved ones lost to another Virus created and spread by Communist China. 

China can afford to lose hundreds of millions of its people and still stage a million-man army. This is their luxury, not so for the West. 

There is a logic in these assumptions as history proved in WW2. No-one believed Japan would be so bold and bomb Pearl Harbor. In contrast, we would still be seeing the North and South Towers of the World Trade Center but for our foolish beliefs that all men and nations are righteous.

ASSAULT on America Happened on NOVEMBER 3rd. 2020

 Now They Know What It Feels Like To Live In Fear ...



theodore miraldi.

What happened on January 6 was the result of over 4 years of planned attacks not only on a President but the American People. Day in and day out the News Media subjected Americans to constant attacks regarding false allegations and Racist vitriol. It's what Democrats do. The destruction of the nation was their intent from the day Barack Obama took office and continued with Hillary Clinton's defeat at the hands of the deplorables. Shamed by defeat, the Clinton Organization that tried to fix the 2016 election went to work with a vengeance, and the help of a 2 term president and his political mob. 

The American Public subsequently has faced a full-throated assault on every level of society. The Democrat Party has all gone queer. I don't mean sexually, I mean mentally. 

Let me state this clearly for those looking to upend civility and fellowship with political rhetoric, what happened on the 6th of January is un-nerving to nearly all Americans. Although the level of violence was minuscule to the actual terror of burning down cities, looting, and executing police officers since the death of George Floyd. 

Over 19 people have died directly from the Summer Riots of 2020 compared to 6 during the Protest on the Capital. Not a peep from our Antifa and BLM supporting Democrats, or calls for the impeachment of officials who openly supported them.

So, let's put things in their proper perspective.

It's permissible to rig an election by purposely changing voting laws by bypassing State Legislatures, kill innocent people, and in addition support subversive groups that have taken over parts of cities and burned down Government Buildings and Police Stations.   

To top off the insanity we are allowing a swamp rat with failing mental abilities with our nuclear codes. How could that be a good thing? What we are getting is an Obama 3rd term with Joe Biden a suspected Chinese collaborator and fraud. Aren't we lucky!

Already his appointees are a rogue gallery of misfits and leftovers who will soon be spewing the same inane policies that put the nation on standstill while flooding our towns and cities with Illegal Immigrants. 

Now we don't have to wait for the new President to commit an impeachable crime, somehow the petty Democrat Party will serve him up when necessary for a Harris Administration with fanfare to boot. Democrats have pulled the biggest scam in American Electoral History and all the while accusing the Republicans of Racism 24/7.

One day they call for civil unrest, the next they impeach a president for making a speech. How unfortunate this new majority in both Houses will only quench their thirst with unrestricted spending as any Blue State can attest.

The real assault has come from the Democrat Party and its Pettiness, to have Power over the population through shutdowns and financial disaster.

OpEd: Sick of Narcissistic Leaders?

 



theodore 
miraldi

Sick of self-serving individuals who will say and do anything to get attention? You know they have hit the pinnacle of their petulance when Elected Government Officials release statements so egregious and dysfunctional only to get validation from their specific group. We have stimulated a primitive behavior by accepting without consequence outlandish language and gutter vitriol. What once was normal interpersonal interaction has been deemed, systemic racism or inappropriate language by the Language Police and History deniers.

What's even more disconcerting are the nasty individuals making the loudest noise.You know who they are, the ones screaming racism not stop! 

Even though the mythological figure Narcissus was a male figure, the moral of this story should not be lost on gender. In Greek Mythology the male figure was Idealized. The female form now sets the standard of beauty and in many quarters personal behavior as well. Serving up vicious personal attacks has long been gender-driven and has now reached across nearly the entire culture. Let's face it, the Cretins are making a lot of noise...and staring at themselves in the mirror.

MORAL 

Narcissus is a figure from Greek mythology who was so impossibly handsome that he fell in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water. Even the lovely nymph Echo could not manage to tempt him from his self-absorption. Then, Narcissus gets punished for his own vanity and gets a curse of his own. Source: https://www.ancient.eu/Narcincient.eu › Narcissus

If you're dogmatic, you follow the rules. You're living in the world you want, and acting a little stuck up about it. Seem familiar? Mixing gender roles has only increased dysfunctional behaviors...

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

Mechanical solidarity is the social integration of members of a society who have common values and beliefs. These common values and beliefs constitute a “collective conscience” that works internally in individual members to cause them to act in unison.  

This GROUPTHINK mentality turns the individual into a member of the hive. Not able to think for themselves and ostracized if they do. This form of behavior has been around since time began. It is the reason many indigenous people were constantly at war with their neighbors.

What our government has been doing by suppressing individual freedom is a regression into Fight or Flight Response.

The Fight or Flight response is an automatic physiological reaction to an event that is perceived as stressful or frightening. The perception of threat activates the sympathetic nervous system and triggers an acute stress response that prepares the body to fight or flee. Source: https://www.psychologytools.com/resource/fight-or-flight response

Is our government playing physiological games with the public? While some say Lockdowns and Prisoner Release is for the Public Good, I for one disagree.

It's akin to cornering a rat, it will either run away or bite you!

Blame Congress for its intent to do harm for political power. We assumed they knew better!

OpEd: Spirit of Our Revolutionary FOUNDERS

 



theodore miraldi

What was witnessed today in the Capital were the citizens this nation has disenfranchised and maligned over several decades. As they were required to be the good soldiers and finance a government that has turned against them and the needs of their families by ruling like Lords over their Subjects.

These protesters were carrying the American Flag and defending the Constitution of this nation. They were not carrying BLM Flags or Gay Nation Flags or even flags from other countries. The corruption of this last election just lit the fuse of the cannon blast that finally hit DC.

Take heed, it was ordinary American Patriots that rose to challenge and defeat the most powerful nation in the world. Many of the Founding Fathers were wanted men and pursued by the British for Treason and Sedition. That did not stop them from removing the yoke of an oppressive master.

The fear instilled in the population by elected officials throughout the nation could only lead to this result. Americans are Revolutionaries who fought to created a nation based on a Constitution that guaranteed Freedom and Liberty. The same Freedom and Liberty the ruling class has been stripping away while engaging in corruption so obvious and arrogant that the fear of correction by those who they must fear has literally been erased. 

For the last 4 years, the Democrat Party has been actively engaged with trying to unseat a duly elected president because they lost an election to a none politician. It made them look inept and replaceable. If that weren't bad enough his achievements surpassed those of career officials and the bureaucrats who have been doing little to nothing to improve the nation and its citizenry. 

A crumbling nation devoid of a moral compass even unwilling to teach its children how to become better citizens.

What was witnessed today was a wake-up call to the malaise that exists in Washington and it's misguided attention on all things that don't matter to most Americans. This call to force was an attempt to make our leaders listen and not an effort to overthrow the government, but to instill the fear that the government must-have of its citizenry. 

It bewildered me to listen to those in Congress speak about the Constitution and use it in a destructive way by speaking to the rest of us as uneducated buffoons. If they had only followed the Constitution regarding Federal Elections and State Election Laws we might not be in this terrible place. They damned themselves for power.

I see only one way to avert further destruction of this nation. Give the people what they want. 

The 1876 Election Commission. If the election were the safest and truest as the Democrats say, this Commission of 5 Representatives of each House and 5 Supreme Court Judges to investigate the challenges and charges of election irregularities could be resolved before January 20th. 2021. Sounds easy and with precedent to boot! 

What do we have to lose?

The United States of America...
